What are Deemed or Out of Contract Rates?


Deemed Contract Rates

If you recently moved into a property that we supply with electricity, but haven’t agreed a contract with us, we won’t leave you without power. You’ll be on what’s known as a ‘Deemed Contract’** . We’ll charge you our Deemed Rates until you agree a contract with us, or until you switch to a new supplier. You can find the link to Deemed terms and conditions below. Please note that these rates are not fixed so may change at any time, but we’ll let you know if they do.

You can find our Deemed Contract Rates for all Network Operator Areas below. Please note, these prices are exclusive of VAT and Climate Change Levy.

** According to Paragraph 3 of Schedule 6 of the Electricity Act 1989.

Out of Contract Rates

At the end of the ‘Fixed Period’ of a Industrial & Commercial customer's contract, they can renew with us, or switch to another supplier. If the customer doesn't do any of these, their contract will move from its ‘Fixed period’ into its ‘Out of Contract Rates period’. We’ll charge you these rates until you agree a new contract or switch to another supplier.
